When songs speak do u listen???


Hey people…have u ever noticed when a song speaks to you??? When some artist has expressed exactly how you’ve felt at some moment…of course you have lol…Recently I’ve been listening to the lyrics of some songs and I’m telling you these artists have been speakin to me…When I first got Beyonce’s CD I really jus listened to the singles and the beats of the other songs lol…hell Single Ladies and Diva were/are the shit lol…well about a week or so ago I actually started listening to the lyrics to the last track on Sasha Fierce…Scared of Lonely…when I heard wut B was sayin it was like she had been in my mind/heart when I was going through some issues…and in some cases I feel this song can still apply. Most likely I’ll do a couple more posts similar to this cuz like I said…some songs have been speaking to me…and I may give you the background story about my experiences and these songs. Well here are the lyrics for those of you who don’t know them. Does this song speak to you in anyway? Cuz I know it sure spoke to me lol...if not wut songs have spoken to u?


Scared Of Lonely - Beyoncé

Lyrics to Scared Of Lonely :
I'm in this fight, and I'm swinging and my arms are getting tired
It's hard, I'm trying to beat this emptiness but I'm running out of time
I'm sinking in the sand, and I can barely stand
I'm lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I'm scared of lonely
I try to be patient, but I'm hurting deep inside
And I can't keep waiting, I need comfort late at night
And I can't find my way, won't you lead me home
Cause I'm lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely.....

I cry at night, 'cause my baby's too far to be by my side
To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
To imagine you would stretch your hand looking for mine
'Cause I'm lost in this dream , I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

I need your strength when nobody is around
'Cause I'm tired of this emptiness, I think I'm drowning
I can't be lonely no more
Cause I'm lost in this dream, I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am lost in this dream, I need you to hold me
I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely.....

The song loneliness from baby face....


You know back in the days when I was younger it was the beat to a song that got me...now I really listen to the lyrics to songs and then fall in love with them;

The song that speaks to me are many. One that comes to mind right now is In The Morning by Ledisi.

Ms. Angie said...

Yes indeed that song actually is one of the songs I took to first. I think in most cases people can almost always be taken by the track that the song is being song to, or maybe even the intrument in the backround. I am always taken by lyrics firt. I know that is hard to do for some.

A few weeks back I placed in my blog this line.

"Music uplifts, There is a song for every moment,
a song for every emotion."

Peace,
Read you later.

I like this song. I have too many songs that speak to me right about now to type lol. ;)

fuzzy said...

songs speak to me way more often than warranted! sometimes im like, "damn shut up!" its all good though...

I cant think of one song that has spoken to me recently, hmmm odd...

Darius T. Williams said...

Yup - I listen...the best song that speaks is Donnie Hathaway's "A Song For You" and JHud's "We Gon' Fight."

Cocoa Rican said...

I've always been a lyrics person...thought I was odd that way. I will listen to the words of a song and be completely blow away - even when the beats could use some help. B is my girl and this song is a great one. Good lookin' out.

I try to listen to the lyrics first on any song. Beats are secondary to me.

Hello...I really like your blog!

There are so many songs that speak...its amazing how we all relate on one level or another and can identify with a myriad of emotions. Ahh the universal wonders of music and lyrics that sing a song of the human condition.

Peace & Love

Me'Shell Ndgeocello usually talks to me. We have DEEEEEP conversations. Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Floetry usually have something to say, too.

I can't stand Be-YAAAAAWN-ce though. I'm sure in doing so, I'm breaking some gay rule. LOL.
